Am i doing this right?

Hello Everyone,
 
I am currently on the 2nd week of my 8 week cut and is sort of going ok.
Weight - 14st
Height - 6ft
Ideally would love to get to about  12st 7lb and get that much sought after 6 pack!!
 
On a daily basis i tend to be eating and doing the following:
 
25g protein in 125ml water
Breakfast - bran flakes, skimmed milk, sweetner to taste.
Mid morning - large cup of tea, dash of skimmed milk with 3 hermesetas - an apple
Lunch - 80g weightwatchers tuna (75 cals per tin) mix this with 1 can of drained tuna in brine - an apple
Afternoon (4pm) - large cup of tea, dash of skimmed milk with 3 hermesetas.
Evening Meal - Chicken breast, salad or mixed veg or steak with salad or mixed veg
Throughout the day i try and drink as much water as possible also.
 
Exercise wise this tends to happen although there can be a few variants with work commitments and stuff.
Pre workout - i always try and have 25g protein in 125ml water
Mon -  10-12k run
Tues - 10-12k run
Wed - Tennis 2hours
Thurs - 10-12k run
Fri - Tennis 2 hours
Sat - 10-12k run
Sun - 3-4 hours Tennis and possible run depending.
Also i ride to and from work everyday........this tends to be my main mode of transport too.
 
When running i get my heart rate up to 175 in places but usually around 145 which im assuming is a good level to be running at for burning calories.  Any feedback would be much appreciated, i am pretty certain that i should be some weights maybe alternate the days running for some restistance work......does this sound sensible?
 
I have taken some photos so when i work out how  do it i  upload them i will for your amusement, thanks for your time
 
Bye for now

    Not sure if you will get to 14st - 12st 7 tbh mate, realistically you can lose a good 12-16 lbs, so imo you could get to just under 13 stone.

    Yes a combo of cardio and weights will reap better gains.

    For fat burning 60-70% so (220 - your age)

    eg say your 20, its 220 - 20 = 200
    200 divided by 60 = 120
    200 divided by 60 = 140
    My range = 120-140 bpm

    Do you usually perform weight training?

    Icemansoldier,
     
    Thanks very much for your reply...its always good to get any advice. I would be happy with 13st which i will target.
    I dont usually perform weight training but i will incorporate some into my schedule and see how i go...unlikely to do it at a gym due to finances but i have weights at home. Will probably try a whole body workout a few times a week, time and dedication will be the key!!!
    watch this space and i will keep people posted, thanks again for the advice
    Be cool

    You don't seem to be eating very much in comparison to the exercise you're doing.

    I dont know many people who have si packs who dont lift weights. Do you plan on introducing a resistance training routine into your exercise regime?

    I think it could be highly beneficial for you.
